New book about Ethiopia’s geology

Frances Williams writes:

I wanted to bring to your readers’ attention a book which I have recently had published:”Understanding Ethiopia: Geology and Scenery”. It is intended as an introduction to the geology of Ethiopia, written in particular for the non-specialist, well illustrated with maps and photographs and with chapters describing in readable terms the geology (and its relation to scenery and cultural sites such as Axum and the rock churches of Tigray and Lalibela) of key parts of the country. The geology of Ethiopia is unique and amazing, and I have long felt the need for a simple description of it for tourists, tour guides, the people of Ethiopia, and anyone else who has an interest in the country. Hence the book.

It is available from the publisher, Springer International Publishing AG, and through other sites such as “Book Depository”, “Amazon” etc in soft cover or as an ebook. More detailed information is available on the publisher’s website:  http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-319-02180-5.

    This is very good news for me and many other friends and colleagues who want to understand about the geology and formation of Ethiopian sceneries. So I would like to express my thanks to the author for his contribution and interest in Ethiopia. Lastly , I wish we could easily get this important book from one of the book stores.

      Hello Legese
      When I was in Addis Ababa recently I visited a number of bookstores to show them the book. It was hard to make them interested – but it is possible that Mega Books and Book World may decide to stock it. Please try them.. Perhaps if enough people ask about it, it will encourage them to do so.
      There are a few copies available at the office of Ethiopian Quadrants tour office (phone 011 515 7990).
